Want to make sure you are healthy? One way to do this is to visit a specialist for an ultrasound examination. Echoscopy (or ultrasound) is an examination of various organs by ultrasound to determine the condition of the tissues, to confirm or rule out a diagnosis. Ultrasound is a painless and uncomplicated way to check for health. The echoscopy is performed using an advanced "Q40" ultrasound that generates ultrasound waves that are reflected from the tissues and returns to the ultrasound sensor, where electrical impulses create an image on the screen. This way, the doctor evaluates the image and gets detailed information about your health condition. 

Benefits of ultrasound examinations

Echoscopy is a fast, harmless, and noninvasive method for examining a person’s health. This test allows the evaluation of soft tissues, organs, blood vessels condition, notice abnormal tissue changes, diagnose diseases. Thus, ultrasound is a valuable and comprehensive diagnostic tool. 

An echoscopic examination can reveal cystic, cancerous, or other structures, often before a person feels the symptoms of the disease. As a result, ultrasound is an excellent prevention of cancer or other diseases. Doctors recommend doing an ultrasound examination, not only when the disease is suspected, but also prophylactically. For those over 40 years of age, it is recommended to perform this examination once a year. 

Ultrasound examination shows the absence of anatomical changes in the organs. Blood and/or urine tests should be done to assess organ function. 

Who is eligible for the procedure?

An echoscope can be performed on anyone who seeks to make an accurate diagnosis of the disease or simply to check prophylactically. There are no age or gender restrictions. 

Who is not eligible for the procedure? 

Echoscope examinations are available to everyone, but they are not usually used to examine the condition of the lungs, stomach, intestines, or bones. X-ray or magnetic resonance imaging is used to diagnose pathologies in these organs.
